hello we'll be going to vietnam for 10 days. was wondering if where i could get materials for planning? main target is to be able to visit the main spots all over vietname, (yun di lang sa hanoi/HCM)
went to VN last june 10-13. i enjoyed walking through the old quarters and visited Halong Bay for 2d/1n. one of the new 7 wonders. it was a relaxing experience. the view at TiTop was breathtaking (literally and figuratively)...
Hi jenli, ask ko lang what travel agency kinuha ninyo para sa tour at how much yung 2d/1n? at comments na din para sa tour na nakuha niyo kung ok ba.
Hello, I've read your blog and your 2 trips to Vietnam. Thanks for sharing, very helpful... Anyway, I hope you can help me, I did my back reading, I just want to clarify a few things. Since we'll be going to siem reap at 6:30 am, ok Lang ba to stay at the departure airport until 4 am? I mean di ba kami papaalisin kse I've read somewhere na pinapaalis daw sa airport? After 4 am, we will be at de tham st, nabasa ko rin here na open ang EDEN Cafe ng 24 hrs, dun Sana namin Balak nagstay while waiting for the sinh tourist to open. Open ba talaga sya at that time, or any recommended na coffee shops or resto na pledge mag stay. I hope you can help me. Thanks
First thing that caught my attention when we entered the city proper in Ho Chi Mihn :
I did the open bus tour in Vietnam for two weeks! My route was Saigon-Mui Ne-Dalat-Nha Trang-Hoi An-Hue. I stopped na in Hue because I'll be in Hanoi naman this August. Awesome experience!
Thanks sa mga nag reply...
Siguro mag stay muna kami sa departure area for a few hours tapos pag napansin na lang na konti na lang yung tao, time to go na... Pag naghostel pa kase kami baka makatulog kami ng mahaba at mamiss yung bus pa-siem reap. Will check na Lang kung anong mga kainan ang bukas ng ganung time. Pag wala talaga, tapangan na lang at magstay na lang sa park...
Thanks talaga sa help, after our tour, I'll post here Kung anong nangyari
eden cafe is located along De Tham st., the same street of sinhcafe ticketing office.
for those who are planning vietnam trip, try nyo din pumunta sa Da Nang City, sya yung pinaka centro ng vietnam, malapit sya sa Hue & Quang Nam Provice. pwede kayong mag tren, bus or by plane (jetstar, viet air or vietnam airlines) from Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi.
Will be spending 4 days in Vietnam. 3 days in HCMC and 1 day (overnight) in Mui Ne. I plan to buy 735,000 VND/pax (or approximately $36) upon our arrival in HCMC airport. Too much or too little?
Will be using the VND to pay for:
-cab fare for city tour
-entrance fee sa War Remnant Museum
-1 or 2 sled rides in Mui Ne
-600,000 VND for food (budget for 150,000 VND a day for lunch dinner and snacks, we have free breakfast)
I understand that they accept dollars so will be paying in dollars yung for hotel, tours and bus rides.
Would appreciate your thoughts.
May snack bars naman just outside the airport na open until mga 2-3am so you can just hang around. Nakakatawa lang kasi nakatulog ako then nagising ako ng mga 4am at ako na lang tao sa labas. hahaha
Ingat din sa mga taxi, most of the drivers wont take small tips, aawayin ka talaga pag maliit lang na tip ibigay mo.
Just be ready with giving tips, alam ng mga locals kung turista ka and they will defo ask for bigger tips, madalas sapilitan pa.
Same din pag punta kayo market nila. If you see something na hindi mo naman talaga gusto, dont bargain or else they will make a scene and you will be forced to buy. A lady grabbed me on my wrist and wouldn't let me go while 3 others were shouting at me at the same time. Tawaran mo lang pag gusto mo talaga bilin.
I also suggest that you buy VND directly from your hotel or from a bank. Kasi nung nagpapalit ako sa airpot, may babae may hawak na sign na 22,000 VND for 1USD then papalit ako ng $50. Tapos ang liit lang ng nakuha ko around 16,000 VND for a dollar. Binawi ko talaga yung pera ko. hahaha
Enjoy naman yung vietnam trip namin though watch out lang talaga sa mga nagtitinda don kasi talagang sneaky sila.
I suggest that you don't miss going to the Mekong Delta and experience a homestay in Cai Rang. Check out my blog:
i'm going by myself to hanoi for four nights from august 3 to 7. can anyone recommend a good tour agency near the hoan kiem lake, specifically lo su street? ang mahal kasi ng tours ng hotel na pagstayan ko e.
